How to remove (uninstall) Net Wiz

The first thing to understand about Net Wiz is that it isn't useful in any meaning of this word. It's just an advertising program. The advertising-oriented tools are separated on two groups: adware and hijackers. They have just one major difference: adware just shows ads on all webpages, and hijackers are trying to redirect you to the suspicious websites from the trusted ones. The very widespread technique of penetration for these tools is to feign a good program. All advantages of these tools are declared very blurry, so it is hard to understand, does the program work or not. Quick search, better detection of bargains and sells, indication of recent actions of your subscribers in Facebook and other pointless features – that’s what such utilities are offering. Of course, they don't perform even these things and just show the irritating advertisement.

Many people might be surprised by the fact that Net Wiz isn't dangerous for your computer. Net Wiz can not even be called malicious, because it does not intervene with the work of programs, it doesn't delete folders and doesn't deal direct damage to the PC. The functions of adware are harmless, but it permits customer to harm his PC as bad as he can. Showing advertisement, hijacker initiates the massive income of people to certain web-sites and gets money for web-criminals. Advertising and boosting services, afforded by adware, are low-cost, and draw hundreds of rustlers. This scheme is impossible to break and advertising programs will operate until the majority of customers will receive a negative experience with hijackers and adware, and cease to install these types of tools.

After crawling into the computer and installation Net Wiz, cares about one thing: displaying ads. The powerful flood of advertising begins to take over browser and desktop, making web-browsing completely impossible. Even if you managed to close the advertisement, hijacker starts to act even more irritating, hiding the whole web-sites. The natural reaction on the emergence of big ad is to hide it, but any click on it calls new browser window or initiates the download. In the case of the browser hijacker infection victim also suffers from permanent redirects to harmful sites. You can delete ads only by removing Net Wiz from your computer once and for all.

How to protect the computer?

Although it is very easy to uninstall Net Wiz, no one could like to perform that each day. The main issue is not the quality of viruses but their quantity. According to this, you must learn not just how to uninstall viruses, but in the first place, how to avoid the infection. Here are some hints and if you'll abide them, the effects will be good for you.

  • All offers on the Internet that promise you large profit must be closely considered before you accept it. Most of such offers are fake, created to increase the rating of the web-site of their developers, but some of them lead to real fraud schemes that could cost you real money.
  • E-mail is very simple to use for illegal purposes. If you don't know who's the sender of an e-mail - you shouldn't click on it. The e-mail attachments are better to open with help of "sandbox" tools.
  • Every time you install some software, you need to carefully revise all windows for viruses. In these windows there is a lot of significant information such as place of installation, the user agreement and more. Most of such programs use a trick called "Partner installation" or "recommended installation", when in addition to the useful tool you get a few useless ones. You should reject such proposals, because malware use this method of spreading very often.

These tips are really easy, but they all are giving you a chance to prevent the infection by malware. Even if the application of the hints is making you feel inconvenient - you need to remember: they are the foundation of computer security. Let your machine be secure and clean, and don't forget that we'll easily answer any question about the undesired programs.
